Communicate Better – Mastering the Art of Sharing Sticky Messages

In a world full of instant communication, getting your message through to students or colleagues can be problematic and almost impossible. From a hallway conversation, to a classroom lecture, to an auditorium speech or a motivational talk on the sidelines, making your message stick is an art and a science leaders must master. Join us as we wrestle with mastering clear, compelling communication with the next generation—in writing, social media, teaching, coaching, inspiring talks and vital conversations!

This event will be geared toward anyone who works with the next generation.  We will specifically present information that is most relevant to those working with High School and College aged Students, however everyone is welcome to attend.  Bring a team from your school or department and soak in every moment.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Engage listeners with short-attention spans immediately.
  • Communicate your big idea in less than thirty seconds.
  • Create incentive in your listeners to stay engaged and commit to action.
  • Capitalize on social media as a tool to connect with students.
  • Understand the messages students desperately need today from you.
  • Measure your communication against a “grid” of what students desire.
  • Improve your communication skill set and deepen your influence.

“The NLF has filled some gaps for me going into a new academic year. The participant mix of K-12, higher ed and collegiate athletics is fitting and inspiring. I enjoyed the message and the materials for implementation. Thank you!”

“The National Leadership Forum will transform you. It will be the conference to which you compare all other conferences. You will forever be changed as an educator. It is a forum that builds bridges between educators and the generation they serve.”
